Summer Program Employment

Every year, Telluride Association hires faculty and staff for the Telluride Association Summer Seminar (TASS). In 2023, TASS will be offered at Cornell University, University of Maryland, and University of Michigan.

TASS combines the close, interdisciplinary consideration of texts and ideas in a discussion-based seminar with the opportunity for students to engage in meaningful service, community-building, and self-governance outside of class. The TASS-CBS program is focused on topics in critical Black studies, while the TASS-AOS program is focused on anti-oppressive studies. The Telluride Association prioritizes the selection of Black students for TASS-CBS, and the selection of Black, Indigenous, and other students of color, as well as students who have experienced economic hardship for TASS-AOS. This six-week summer program is offered free of charge to all participants.

Summer Program Faculty

The call for proposals for 2023 summer program faculty is closed. For more information on teaching at TASS, or to reach out about teaching at a future TASS, please see our faculty page.

Summer Program Staff

Each TASS is facilitated by two factotums. As the name implies, factotums “do everything” in support of the summer programs – from organizing guest lectures to ensuring the smooth functioning of student social life. Factotums are also supported by a site supervisor, who oversees the program and facilitates the relationship with our institutional partners. Telluride Association welcomes applications from current and recently graduated college students, as well as from teachers and educators, for these positions.

Applications for the summer 2023 factotum and site supervisor positions will open in Fall 2022. For more information, please contact tass@tellurideassociation.org.
